6 Best Substitutes for Butter  - You Must Kno

Butter can be used in baking and cooking, but not everyone can use it. You can find butter replacements to minimize saturated fat, go vegan, or manage a dairy allergy.

1. Olive Oil 

Sautéed veggies and grilled sandwiches are great ways to use olive oil instead of butter. Use it as a 1:1 butter substitute in most recipes or pour it over bread for a heart-healthy treat.

2. Avocado 

Avocado, creamy and healthy, can substitute butter in spreads, dips, and baked goods.  Avocado richness adds moisture and flavor to recipes

3. Coconut Oil 

A popular dairy-free and vegan butter substitute is coconut oil. In recipes, coconut oil can replace butter 1:1, however its coconut flavor may impair taste.

4. Applesauce

In cakes, muffins, and quick breads, unsweetened applesauce can replace butter to reduce fat and provide moisture. Test different percentages to get the optimal recipe balance.

5. Greek Yogurt

Many recipes use nutritious Greek yogurt instead of butter. Creaminess enhances pancakes, sauces, and baked goods. Replace butter with Greek yogurt for nutrition and flavor.

6. Nut Butters 

Peanut, cashew, and almond butters make great butter alternatives in sweet and savory dishes. Spread them on toast, dip produce, or use them in cookies and energy bars. Nut butters infuse foods with healthful fats and nutty flavor.
